New Norma URP Powder Available

Norma URP powderWe’ve been waiting over a year for the new Norma URP (“Universal Rifle Powder”) to make it to America. This is an extruded powder with a burn rate similar to H4350. URP is available from Powder Valley and Grafs.com, and both companies have plenty in stock. We think this powder may be ideal for use in the 6XC and 6-6.5×47. We suspect it will also work very well for the .284 Winchester. Jason Baney recently received 2 lbs. of URP and he will be doing initial pressure/velocity workups this weekend.
